The Curse Of SI… What Curse?

An article by posted on March 31, 2009 0 Comments

Despite the title, I’m not one who believes in jinxes and curses hence the question mark. Instead, I find myself exceedingly glad that Sports Illustrated has picked the New York Mets to win the 2009 World Series, beating the Los Angeles Angels. Of course, the fine folks at SI aren’t telling me something I didn’t already […]

Evans Almighty Is White Hot!

An article by posted on March 20, 2009

Somebody forgot to give Nick Evans the memo. The young first baseman started the spring with a one way ticket to AAA Buffalo, but all bets are off now. Apparently, either nobody told Evans, or he decided on his own to make it utterly impossible for the Mets to send him to the minors. You […]

Wright Is As Clutch As They Come

An article by posted on March 18, 2009

Maybe after last nights game winning walk-off hit by David Wright, some dissenting Mets fans can begin to embrace David Wright as clutch hitter. Of course, one game isn’t going to convince you of anything, but last nights win over Puerto Rico was actually one of many. When Wright stepped up with the bases loaded […]

Circle Of Love – Duaner, Omar, Jerry

An article by posted on March 11, 2009

Good evening MetsMerizers! I woke up this morning feeling pretty good and the first thing I see on SI.com is an article about how Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya are at odds over Duaner Sanchez being released.   Granted, the article was taken from the NY post so I’m sure it’s a bit exaggerated. The Mets […]

J.J. Putz – This Guy Is An Animal

An article by posted on February 23, 2009

If you’re wondering how J.J. Putz is coming along so far this spring, David Lennon of Newsday has the scoop… Manager Jerry Manuel never got a chance to watch J.J. Putz on the mound during yesterday’s live batting-practice sessions. Apparently, he didn’t need to. “I heard about Putz,” Manuel said. “I didn’t see him throw. […]

Hot or Not: Port St. Lucie Edition

An article by posted on February 14, 2009

Happy Spring Training Mets fans! I can’t wait for the season to begin so the Mets can prove everybody wrong! With the arrival of Spring Training, I’m bringing back the Hot or Not feature. I really can’t judge anyone based on their performance just yet, mainly because half the team is leaving for the World […]

Trading Wright is the Wrong Move

An article by posted on October 4, 2008

Earlier this week, Mike Francesa suggested trading David Wright because he is nowhere to be found in pressure games. This idea to me is laughable, mainly because 25-year-old Gold Glove 3rd baseman who average 29 homers and 114 RBI and hit over .300 in their first four seasons grow on trees. Don’t we wish? So […]

Marlins Reel In Mets Playoff Hopes

An article by posted on September 27, 2008

Almost to the exact day as last year, the Mets find themselves again on the verge of elimination at the hands of the Florida Marlins. What is it about the Mets that can energize and motivate a team like the Marlins to deriving such pleasure from delivering the final blow to the Mets? Former Mets catcher […]

Why Doesn’t Anyone Blame David Wright?

An article by posted on September 19, 2008

I love David Wright as much as the next Mets fan (okay, maybe even more) but he seems to be immune to any blame for the Mets current affairs. I got excited as David finally reached the .300 mark last week and I cried when David entered a 1-for-18 slide that puts his current average […]
